2nd Alton Boys' Brigade - Junior Section News

Home » News » Junior Section News

March has been a busy month for the Junior Section. A main activity each week has been menu planning and cooking, with some very tasty looking pizzas being made by the boys and taken home to enjoy at the end of the evening. They will be making their dessert course next, will they remember all they know about healthy eating as they do this?
Alongside the cooking, the boys have been creating their artworks for the upcoming Competitions Day. With this year's theme being Jesus' healing miracles, the boys have been making pictures showing the story of the paralysed man lowered through the roof to Jesus by his friends (Mark 2:1-12). They have also been practising their figure-marching ready for the competition. The "figure of eight" is a new manoeuvre for them and proving quite a challenge. With the artwork completed we will be concentrating on performing the play and learning the song over the next couple of Fridays. Hopefully we will be ready to face the judges at the Competitions Day on 25th March.
Some of our 3rd Year boys have been attending band practice with the Company Section on Wednesday evening and they will have the chance to show off their new skills when the band leads the Boys' Brigade and Girls' Brigade in the Spring Parade to the Church on Sunday 2nd April.

An Unexpected WanderStorms Ciara and Dennis had passed, but the ground was still very wet. Wasn't it a good thing that we had chosen to go to Weaver's Down, which is dry and sandy underfoot, for the Church Winter Wander walk?But when we arrived, we found, much to everyone's surprise, that the area had been closed off by the Army 'for military training exercises'. So there...

Dear Friends,I am sure that we are grateful for the beautiful spring weather that we have enjoyed this week. It has given us much to be thankful for in this time of uncertainty and anxiety as our daily lives have in many ways been turned upside down.A hymn that brings me reassurance and comfort is:Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father,There is no shadow of turning with Thee;Thou...
